Organic Gardening in St. Louis City

Early seedlings

I started a full tray of seeds (72) yesterday. In my estimation, we are 8 weeks away from the last frost, which is usually around mid-April. This tray will sit in a south facing window once the seeds have germinated. We’ll transplant most of the seedlings into one of the hoop houses before the last frost to see if we can get a head start on the growing season.  Here’s what I started:

  • Nasturtium (Edible flower)
  • Bok Choi (Chinese Cabbage)
  • Kale
  • Chamomile
  • Basil
  • Spinach

Tomatoes, peppers and broccoli will be started in the basement under some lights later this weekend or next week.
